of the game. kicking the can is the best way to describe what happens. think of the economy and where it could be in tin years. unemployment, the rate of inflation with the federal reserve policies, we might be looking in a significant threat of inflation. so in the amount of budget cutting that they do, the value of dollars cut will be diminished. cheryl: she has a great point, and there is another issue. in fact, if you look at overall what congress can are cannot do in the next and here's, they're going to change their minds. we have seen that with the fight over entitlement programs. everyone comes in saying there will address medicare, social security and medicaid, and they never do it because reelection comes of senate and later. >> well, in fact, we should be celebrating an anniversary, popping champagne corks because it was exactly 12 years ago tomorrow that alan greenspan testified before congress and said the biggest challenge this country has in terms of fiscal issues is that the budget surplus is getting so large that we will have no choice but to buy stock in private companies. tw

. by doing this, we sent a not so subtle signal that the focus of our country is on the farm economy of washington, d.c. instead of that really come out here in charlotte, new orleans, and cheyenne. we as republicans have to accept government number crunching. it is not the answer to our nation's problems. we've got to face one cold hard fact -- washington is a dysfunctional that any budget proposed based on fiscal sanity will be deemed not series by the media and it will fail in the united states senate and will not make it to the president's desk where he would veto it anyway. any serious proposal to restrain government growth is immediately deemed non-serious in washington, d.c. the balanced budget amendment is called non-serious as are term limits, capping federal growth to the growth of the private sector economy is deemed not serious in washington, d.c. anything serious is deemed not serious in washington d.c.. when senator obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous $8 trillion. he clarified for a fact --

to put his time. >> brown: well, you know, he spoke about the economy, getting the economy right first and foremost. he said "more than ever foreign policy is economic policy." did that sound right to you? >> i think that's right and i think this is a man who's grown up, really, in the political military side of foreign policy and national security and i think one of the challenges will be for him to recognize that the economic instrument in trade is really very important. if you look at asia, the coin of the realm in asia is trade and economics and, you know, if we're going to have a rebalancing toward asia, it needs to be an economics and trade overwhelmingly. so he's got, i think, a real opportunity to help lead the administration in using all of our instruments for national power influence, particularly economic and trade. >> brown: what do you think -- i mean, i know what you think about -- we talked about this in your last book about the need for economic thinking, i guess, changing the way we think about the world. but do you think that the administration has understood that wel

the downside. >> i don't think that people have been overly optimistic on the economy. and, we've seen autos really rebounding over the last year. we're really starting to see improvement in the housing market. so, i think those are some very fundamental pieces of the economy that could really lead to some stronger growth in the future. >> reporter: as for retail investors rediscovering stocks this january, not everyone thinks the reunion is for real. some experts say the market will have to rally a lot longer before that happens. suzanne pratt, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: from a smartphone in your hand to a smartphone in your glasses, still ahead, the latest fashion trend: wearable technology. exxon-mobil is back on top. it's reclaimed the coveted title as the world's most valuable company. apple now slips to number two. exxon is worth an estimated $417 billion and apple is $4 billion less. since apple hit $700 a share in september. it has lost roughly $250 billion in value. the change comes exactly one year after the tech titan knocked the oil giant out of the top spot. shares of microso
economy, which is completely manageable. this has shot up dramatically and it's going to continue to shoot up under current policies. the evidence is very clear in academic literature. it's very clear in international observation. there comes a point where your debt in terms of your economy reaches leve a level in which ct markets become noticeably disturbed and you become very worried. and if it's -- rising interest rates which then spread throughout the economy. mortgage rates and consumer rights and so forth. this is a certainty, and it is the path we are on that will have extreme consequences that we are not used to think about in this country spend i asked the question how much time do we really have. you know, with the u.s. per person debt now 35% higher at. wendy think we face our greek moment -- when do you think we take our greek moment to get our fiscal house in order? >> right now we are having good news-bad news situation. the good news is that despite all that we have done wrong, we're still one of the safest places in the world to invest. there's a lot of places around the wo

to attribute all this do. we'll talk to gouldsby about jumging the economy. i don't know if he's good about -- >> he's been pretty spot on. >> but we're going to hear up some of the party line from him. i saw some of the stuff he says. we're going to find out why we're doing a little better and is whether it's going to continue. let's get the national forecast now. oh, my man is back, the weather channel's reynolds wolf. i told you that the last time. cold weather. >> that's right. >> climate change, snow climate change, no snow, climate change. any variability. and we know about weather over the years, over the millions and billions of years. we know that it never -- the median line is because of all this variability. so it goes like this and then we get to the middle. but now, anything that is not right on that middle average is now seen as, oh, something is happening. >> reynolds is going, what? >> no. he is with me. he knows exactly what i'm saying. every single thing is because of co2 emissions now, reynolds. >> i am just absorbing this. i am just absorbing this. no, we have to talk, m

the economy has got to be at the very, very top. second of all in my view, when scientists tell us that if we don't get a handle on global warming, the planet may warm by eight degrees by the end of the century with devastating consequences, of course we have to move away from fossil fuel in a dramatic way. transform our energy system. by the way, we can create jobs doing that. right now our republican friends, when you talk about want to do entilement reform, it's not entitlement reform. let's be clear. it's massive cuts in social security, medicare, veterans programs, medicaid. >> you know their argument is that you can't just raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitabl

economy now that is slowly but surely- i am not going to say it's great- but it is better than it was, and i think that's helping that oil price, and i think that the market will shrug off anything from overseas right now. i think if it was a middle eastern problem, yes. but right now, not north korea. > there was a major fallout from apple's disappointing earnings. how much further will this stock fall, do you think? where is the bottom here? > > i think it could go probably another 10% more. i think it could be the $410, $400 level, because i think ultimately it has fallen out of favor. like sometimes a bar just becomes unpopular for no good reason. i think that has kind of happened to apple here. they have lost steve jobs obviously, they haven't had anything really new to roll out. so they are going to have to have some sort of event to stop the slide. > scott shellady of trean group. good to talk to you today. have a nice weekend. > > ok. all hands are on deck to get to the bottom of boeing's battery troubles. that's according to the national transportation safety board, which sai
been occupied by traders from far-off monte alban, an indication of a complex economy here. bill sanders. one of the aspects of culture that is extraordinarily variable is the economy. economy means the ownership of property and the production and distribution of goods. there are cultures and economies in which every nuclear family is self-sufficient. and then there are economies where there is considerable interdependence among the various households. one of the measures of economic complexity is just the amount of what we call division of labor -- occupational specialization. keach: archaeologists have recently discovered evidence of occupational specialization in teotihuacan, like the manufacture of clay figurines. figurines came in a variety of styles, many painted and highly detailed. thousands of these sculpted faces have been discovered. they were probably used in ritual. many are exactly the same, indicating they were mass produced in molds. across the atlantic is fez, morocco, a city that has changed little in a thousand years. here can be found an analogy for the econom

that's bullish for the economy. >> if you look at some of the trucking names. normally take out the airlines. the airlines have done quite well if they reduced capacity although if you look at some of the reports i think it was u.s. air, but i believe they said that some of their seats were down a bit even though they cut capacity. that was a little bit of a warning sign. even on trucking side it was okay. but now as a trader and investing in the market you have to hook six months ahead. what will happen coming down. we know everything is done well. we know they are up 7%. what's the next move. that's where you get concern. >> we look at the leading indicators. pmi from china, europe, u.s. today the leading indicators in that sentiment indicator is telling us we're not done. we could bleed higher in terms of economic sentiment and economic activity and the new orders component the global pmi looks like it will print above 50 in january for the first time in eight months. >> i'm sure there's a stock market correction. >> when? >> the stock market among other things including what

where we are not really seeing other signs of the economy reinforce it. i'd like to see some reinforcing signals and we're not, but for the time being two weeks of numbers this low are very tantalizing. >> reporter: jobless claims are now at roughly the same level they were in early 2008. also, don't forget that up until this week's cold-weather snap, temperatures were unseasonably warm, letting builders continue projects in what would typically be snowy weather. >> temperatures have been above normal and typically when you do have above normal temperatures economic activity and in particular jobless claims do show some bias for exaggerated improvement that perhaps we may not get the layoffs that are typical around this year in particular in the construction industry. >> reporter: construction is expected to continue to be strong, estimates have the industry adding as many as 140,000 jobs this year, that's up from a meager 18,000 in 2012. but construction is just one sector, and, much like the weather in january, the jobs picture could go from hot to cold just as easily. ruben ramirez,
